Papapetros sisters power Brooks, lead annual awards

Brooks School sisters Bella and Olivia Papapetros of North Andover are quite the combo.

Bella, a senior forward/midfield, scored seven goals and added 13 assists. Olivia, a sophomore defender/midfield, had two goals and one assist.

The two sisters helped Brooks to a 13-4-2 record and the program’s first ISL championship since 2007.

They lead this year’s Eagle-Tribune girls soccer awards as the “Top Sister Combo.”

Here are the rest of the awards:

STORY OF THE YEAR: Haverhill

Haverhill girls soccer had its best season in school history, posting a 12-1-4 regular season record on its way to the MVC Division 2 title and a 13-2-4 overall record.

Several Hillies players had standout seasons and head coach Fred Tarbox added quite an experienced first-year assistant, his dad Bill Tarbox, who was a high school varsity boys head coach for 40 years (22 years in North Andover), posting 422 victories.

He just retired from North Andover last year.

The Tarbox pair made quite the father/son coaching combo, leading the Hillies’ ascent to the top of the MVC.

“He’s been a really big help,” Haverhill senior Kelleigh Cokely said about Bill Tarbox during the season.

“He helps to run all of our practices and do the drills that we need. ... This year we have a lot more skill drills that we’ve been doing. So I think that’s helped us with our game.”

Cokely, meanwhile, won the MVC Division 2 MVP for the second straight year, scoring nine goals and adding five assists.

TOUGH AS NAILS AWARD: Central’s May

How tough is Central Catholic senior defender Stephanie May?

Well, the EMass first-teamer hardly ever left the field, playing 99 percent of all potential minutes during her career.

The Central defense shut out 49 of 63 opponents with her on the field throughout high school.

May will play soccer either at WPI or RPI.
